Gaia Testnet is now open

We’re pleased to announce we’ve now deployed initial Cosmos Validators on Gaia testnet. By joining testnet (Gaia) you can learn how to properly set up and secure a full validator node before the launch of the Cosmos Hub in December 2017. The Interchain Foundation (ICF) is seeking members from the Cosmos community who are interested in acting as validators on the Cosmos testnet. ICF will provide guidance and ongoing support for testnet validators.

Here’s how to participate:

  1. Join our Working Group on Matrix Chat at Share best practices from other members in the validators community.
  2. Set up a validator node on Gaia testnet by following the documentation at
  3. Follow the testnet setup video tutorial below.

4. You’re running a testnet validating full node!
